RS Feva Open Training and Racing Weekend at St Mawes
13th – 14th April 2013
13 boats and 26 youngsters from across Cornwall came together for a windy weekend of open training and Racing in RS Feva dinghies hosted by Roseland Paddle and Sail and St Mawes Sailing Club.
Visitors came from Rock and Porthpean. More were expected from Penzance SC and Fowey Gallants but the poor forecast caused them to cancel.
On Saturday the fleet was divided into 2 – the more experienced ones out in the bay in St Mawes coached by Bob Warren, and the less experienced up the river in more sheltered waters at Percuil, coached by Marianne Bryant. Various race training exercises were undertaken, and the sailors returned to shore wet but exhilarated! The strong winds took their toll with only 8 boats returning for the afternoon session, quickly reduced to 6 after 2 failed to get off the beach. The crews worked on their heavy weather upwind skills and downwind blasting!
Sunday dawned even windier, and the briefing was postponed to 10.30 in the expectation of the weather moderating, which it did. Race Officer Bob Warren sensibly decided to sail the 5 races in the more sheltered conditions in the river. With the windy conditions results were quite erratic, with gear failure, man overboard, multiple capsizes and groundings in the shallow water after lunch taking their toll on the fleet. The traditional ‘Tea on the Quay’ was much appreciated, especially as the sun finally came out.
